Kyle Brodziak signs one-year deal with Blues

The T.J. Oshie trade will continue to receive all of the attention, but the Blues went out and made a solid signing Thursday night by inking Kyle Brodziak to a one-year deal. Brodziak most recently skated with the Minnesota Wild and had 20 points across 73 regular season games. The Blues were seeking a bit of depth and Brodziak should fit that bill on the fourth line. This likely...

Key Observations heading into game 74 between Penguins and Hurricanes

  By Annie Shean (@JustPuckIt) The Penguins are coming off a 3-2 overtime loss against the St. Louis Blues Tuesday evening at home.

Colligan: 7 Questions on Lapierre, Adams, and the New Jersey Trap

View image | (1) Why did the Marcel Goc / Maxim Lapierre trade even happen? On the surface, the Goc-Lapierre trade didn’t make a lot of sense.  Both teams seemed to be swapping versatile, pending-UFA, fourth-line centers with comparable cap hits (Goc $1.2M and Lapierre $1.1M).

Blues believe Goc will be a better fit with Ott, Reaves on fourth line

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' new fourth-line center could help shore up some minor weaknesses heading into the second half. Few would have faulted general manager Doug Armstrong for sticking with a roster that has produced 37 goals and earned 15 of 16 possible points in its last eight games. But the best leaders understand there's always room for improvement, and a Tuesday night trade...
